Angus Cloud: HBO Euphoria actor who played ‘Fez’ dead aged 25

Angus Cloud, who starred on HBO hit series Euphoria has died, aged 25.

Cloud, who played drug dealer Fezco “Fez” O’Neill on the teen drama, died on Monday at his family home in Oakland, California, said a publicist.

“It is with the heaviest heart that we had to say goodbye to an incredible human today,” said a statement from Cloud’s family.

“We hope that his passing can be a reminder to others that they are not alone and should not fight this on their own in silence.”

Two weeks ago, Cloud posted a photo of his father on Instagram and wrote: “miss u breh.”

A source close to Cloud’s family told Entertainment Tonight that Cloud “had been battling severe suicidal thoughts” after he returned from Ireland where he buried his father.

Cloud was staying with family, ET reported, “as he tried to work through overcoming grief”.

He was immensely talented and a beloved part of the HBO and Euphoria family,” HBO said in a statement.

Cloud had minor acting credits in two films, North Hollywood and The Line.

According to a 2019 interview with GQ, Cloud had no real aspirations to become a star, or even an actor.

“I thought it was a scam.”

After first airing in June 2019, Euphoria quickly became a hit and by 2022 was the most tweeted-about TV show of the decade in the US.

The main character, played by Zendaya, is a 17-year-old who struggles with drug abuse, seen on screen taking the deadly opioid fentanyl and injecting morphine.
